made it very clear he doesn't want to go over a fiscal cliff, and his preference is to do a deal with the republicans. so i think what marc said at the beginning is not true. it may look that way, and i think we're in the early stages of what is going to be -- you know, any kind of negotiation that goes on, you've got both sides fighting in the beginning, and hopefully at the end we're going to come together for a deal. the democrats have accepted spending cuts already, right? in 2011 we accepted a trillion dollars in domestic spending cuts. in our passage of the health care bill in 2010, we cut $716 billion out of medicare which the republicans have attacked us on for the last -- megyn: that was used to fund obamacare. >> it doesn't matter. it doesn't matter -- >> exactly. sure it does. >> it doesn't matter. we cut an entitlement program, right? and so -- >> and spent it somewhere else. >> which the republicans haven't done. and so we've already shown -- >> oh, my gosh. >> -- that we are willing to do the hard things required to reduce the testify sit. we want to raise -- deficit. we

exactly is in the latest white house plan for dealing with the so-called fiscal cliff. today, senator john cornyn tells us what happened inside of a meeting between the treasury secretary and a senate budget committee. and what the treasury secretary told the gop behind closed doors. senator john cornyn is not happy. and you can feel the rage. hurricane sandy and the eruption at fema officials. ahead of the holiday season. we will update you coming up next. and a cartoon snake comes the new face of a 2 trillion-dollar pension nightmare. we will tell you which state could be collapsing under the weight of its own promises, and whether you'll come in the u.s. taxpayer, could be footing the bill for a government bailout that you probably don't realize. >> so the pool of money is smaller. the demand on a pool of money leaves the current workers to ask whether there will be enough when they are able to retire. the problem is the squeeze. some laxatives like dulcolax can cause cramps. but phillips' caplets don't. they have magnesium. for effective relief of occasional constipation. thanks.

. >> right. so the question is is the president serious about avoiding the fiscal cliff. we know pain in this country is bad on the economy. it would only broad and deep fn we hit a double dip recession. is the president serious about avoiding that cliff and if not, why not. i think some people are wondering -- megyn: do you think it is a matter of principle for the president? chris fire walt cam -- chris stt with a piece to say it's an ideological commitment on the part of the president to make the rich pay more and to give others more. for him it's an ideological mission to take the money from high income and give to it people who don't have as much. >> i agree with chris he said that. that's what he wants to do. but the curious part to me is you had quite a few lawmakers on the republican side of the isle start t --side of the aisle stao crack. they are willing to come to table and play ball. but the president is on the campaign trail and upping the states with totally ludicrous suggestions and plans like the one if you can call it that, the one he put out last week which is totally a
